2022 HOPE FOR HUMANITY
LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT & CEO AND BOARD CHAIR
What an incredible evening! More than 1,000 joined us in person and virtually as we came together to pay tribute to our local Holocaust Survivors and to honor Dallas Mavericks CEO Cynt Marshall.
The spirit of hope for humanity is nowhere more visible than in the lives of our Holocaust Survivors. Having lived through unimaginable atrocities, they are beacons of kindness, faith, and strength.
At the Museum, we inspire Upstander behavior by telling the stories of individuals who see something wrong and work to make it right. The Kindertransport was such an example. At the event, we were proud to debut an original Museum-produced film sharing a story of the Kindertransport told through the personal testimonies of siblings Magie Furst and Bert Romberg, who were with us in attendance.
It was a privilege to honor Cynt Marshall - a history-maker as the first Black female CEO of an NBA team and a trailblazer for creating and sustaining an inclusive, diverse corporate culture. Read more here.
